A New Passion of Mine - Magnolias!


Meet my new little cutie angel, Tilda. She's made you some cookies and let me tell you, I'm sure they're better than what I could cook! She's one of my newest passions, Magnolia stamps. I absolutely adore her! Seh came to me from Diana Crick of Scor-Pal's new online store she's setting up. I colored her with my Prismacolor pencils and OMS, put glossy accents on her cookies to make them look glazed, a tip I found from Monika at MAD Stamper (I hope you don't mind me borrowing that tip), the paper is from Imaginisce, prisma flowers and the plastic baubles are from some blog candy I won from Monika. Her layout is from a challenge on the Tilda & Co Challenge blog.

Tilda reminds me so much of how I pictured my girls when they were little. I thought of how cute they'd be all dressed up in their little Polly Flanders dresses with the cute muted floral patterns and their little patten shoes. How sweet and dainty they'd be. Well, what I ended up with was one who dressed up because she loved it but didn't like anyone to really know it, one who absolutely hated dresses, and the other who loved to put on her best dress and haul on her big black rubber boots over her pretty white tights. So pardon me while I color and dress up Tilda like the perfect little "Angel" I always wanted. But looks are deceiving. I'd bet Tilda deep down likes dresses sometimes, not so much at other times and loves boots, but not the tights! Yes, I think I really do have those angels I always wanted.

A beautiful, cooking angel (my hubby's dream-lol)!! Great coloring! I wish my daughter liked to dress up too, but I finally realized that she is just part boy--kiddin of course--lol!!! No pretty dresses on her either unless she's onstage!
